ESMV-NS Honors Employees During Its Annual Years of Service Ceremony

Employees of Elder Services of the Merrimack Valley and North Shore were recognized today for their dedication to community service during a special remote version of the organization’s annual Years of Service ceremony.

Chief Executive Officer Joan Hatem-Roy and members of the leadership team gave tribute to those employees achieving milestone anniversaries.

“We know all of you have worked hard for this accomplishment, and we truly appreciate your dedication,” said Hatem-Roy. “We applaud the determination and effort each of you has demonstrated, especially during a time of many changes. The pandemic has challenged all of us to find new and different ways to continue to provide excellent service and programming.”

ESMV-NS employees provide a wide range of essential services to 28 cities and towns across northeastern Massachusetts. It is especially important to not only honor these employees but the entire staff, who have continued their commitment to excellent service during this pandemic.

“You have continued to focus on what is important, and that is why we are so proud to have each one of you as part of our work family,” said Hatem-Roy. “Today is our chance to say thank you and wish all of you the best for continued success.”
